    Intro: My own dedicated server.

    As an Apple user, hobbyist, lover, nerd and share holder I needed a decent server to host my own and my clients web sites. And while it isn't my job I always like to try and error new things with an apple as a hobbyist.

    For the last 10 years I rented my dedicated server in the USA.
    But what I noticed was that with every problem I had with my dedicated server I had to relay on the company that rented me the server.

    The first company sold their server park after 5 years to a, let say, Russian spam company that only wanted to use the IP blocks.
    - Conclusion they lost my server and my backups. (Glad that I still had some backups of my own)

    The second company was asking to much for extra HD space, memory and help.
    - They also where bad in listening (example: instead of fine tuning MYSQL they upgraded it witch resulted in broken databases)

    The third company is the best, while I managed to install and run my own dedicated server.
    - Advantages of running your own Apple dedicated server are:
    + Quality hardware;
    + Reliable;
    + 64BIT, great for hosting web sites;
    + Low Costs, you buy your own RAM and HD.
